WEATHER: Tropical Storm Julia on GA-FL line, unsettled weekend ahead

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Tropical Storm Julia formed just west of Jacksonville, FL last night and in my experience that's the only tropical cyclone I know of that has ever formed over land.

It will amount to little more than a rainmaker over the north Florida, south Georgia and the South Carolina coastal plain over the next few days. Sadly, it will largely fail to help the WBTV viewing area with any badly needed rain, as Julia will combine with a stationary front anchored over the I-95 corridor in South Carolina.

On Thursday another weak front arrives, and it too is expected to stall into the weekend while we await yet another front on Sunday and Monday.  All that adds up to higher chances of rain and possible storms over the weekend time frame.  

Until then, temperatures will be fairly steady with highs in the 80s, lows in the 60s and isolated showers/storms through the second half of the week.  While we have cut back on the heat, the muggy air isn't going anywhere just yet.
